This hotel is as close as one can possibly get to Versailles. I was ill so was able to come back to the room, take a nap, then go back. Versailles is exhausting. It was nice to walk through the gardens in the evening then back to the hotel. Staying this close allows you to go to the palace just before closing which is when the crowds are leaving. I was there end of May and it was packed inside!
Here is something remarkable. I told the concierge I was ill and fifteen minutes later, Monsier le doctor was knocking on my door. He prescribed antibiotics and the charge was only 65 E. Can you beat that? A doctor coming to see you at your hotel?
The following day, the concierge assisted me in getting a room in a fabulous estate home near the D-day beaches, when every hotel on the coast was taken due to a French holiday.
NOTE: You can get your Versailles ticket at the bar next door saving you from standing in line! The hotel has an elevator. I had a lovely room with a huge bathtub. They have AC. I could see the gates of Versailles from my window. You also see all the buses. Drop off your bags, then go park your car. I parked on the street for two days and did not get a ticket.
